Thomas Rhett Gives Thanks for His Wife’s Support

Thomas Rhett Gives Thanks for His Wife's Support

It’s been a banner year for Thomas Rhett. He scored several hit songs as a songwriter, topped the charts as an artist with “It Goes Like This” and spent several months as a special guest on Jason Aldean’s Night Train Tour. Despite all of his success, his wife Lauren is what Thomas is most thankful for this Thanksgiving.

“I don’t know what I would do without a constant support system,” he said.  “Somebody that can deal with me being on the road as much as I am and still have somebody to call at one or two in the morning when I’m done doing all this stuff who will gladly answer. [She] might not be in the best mood, but at least she’s there. That’s one of the biggest reasons that I can perform well every night.” Continue Reading
